Recap by phillip woo

Ka Ying Excellent kept on gamely after hitting the front 350m out stalking the leader Igniting from a wide gate. He was building towards a win in two prior starts this term. E Star closed well for second following a one-off run travelling midfield. It was another solid effort but the 14-pound swing in the weights was the difference in the end. Happy Qiji ran on well near the outside following a patient ride third last from a wide gate to place at massive odds. It was a vastly-improved effort. Igniting grudgingly gave way to miss a placing after travelling a bit too keenly in front from a tricky gate. He's run well in both starts. Longshot Amazing News closed off reasonably well from towards the rear to earn a pay cheque in his debut here. Smoothies came up one-paced following a handy run one off the fence. Chicken Dance gave up the chase 150m out after finding nothing when asked for an effort rounding the final bend following a prominent run on the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (244) - CARNARVON HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Meters

GAMEPLAYER TIMES was withdrawn on 3.12.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter MISSION TYCOON.

Before being allowed to race again, GAMEPLAYER TIMES will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

AMAZING NEWS and FANTASTIC SHOW were slow to begin.

CELESTIAL POWER began only fairly.

LUCKY MARYKNOLL shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of E STAR, causing both horses to become unbalanced and LUCKY MARYKNOLL to lose ground.

IGNITING began awkwardly and made contact with the hindquarters of KA YING EXCELLENT which shifted in on jumping.

Shortly after the start, CHICKEN DANCE and SMOOTHIES bumped.

After this, SMOOTHIES was slow to muster speed despite being ridden along.

From wide barriers, HAPPY QIJI and SHOUSON were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, SMOOTHIES shifted in away from IGNITING and brushed CHICKEN DANCE.

At the 950 Metres, CHICKEN DANCE and SMOOTHIES bumped.

SMOOTHIES then raced tight outside CHICKEN DANCE which made the turn near the 900 Metres awkwardly.

At the entrance to the Straight, MISSION TYCOON became unbalanced when awkwardly placed close to the heels of CHICKEN DANCE.

Then approaching the 350 Metres, MISSION TYCOON raced tight inside CHICKEN DANCE when improving into restricted room inside that horse.

Throughout the race, PRIME MINISTER travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of CHICKEN DANCE, A Badel stated that he was asked to have the horse where it was comfortable and it was anticipated that SMOOTHIES, which was drawn outside CHICKEN DANCE, would obtain the lead and that he may be able to obtain a trailing position behind that horse.

He said when SMOOTHIES did not show as much early speed as anticipated and had to be ridden along for a considerable distance, he maintained his position inside that horse rather than allowing it to cross CHICKEN DANCE as he did not want to be caught behind SMOOTHIES if the horse gave ground.

He added CHICKEN DANCE travelled only fairly in the early and middle stages and then came under pressure rounding the Home Turn to maintain its position.

He said he rode CHICKEN DANCE along in the early part of the Straight, however, the horse did not respond to his riding and then passing the 300 Metres commenced to give ground and shortened in its action.

He said as he had concerns regarding the action of CHICKEN DANCE, he eased it down over the concluding stages, however, CHICKEN DANCE was already well beaten at this stage.

A veterinary inspection of CHICKEN DANCE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of CHICKEN DANCE, which finished at the rear of the field, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, CHICKEN DANCE will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of LEAP OF FAITH immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

KA YING EXCELLENT and E STAR were sent for sampling.
